iPad Air Drop Test – Least Durable Tablet?
How's it going guys tech cracks here so in this video basically what I had done is I went out to my local Apple Store and I picked up a brand new iPad air this was a regular 16 gigabyte Wi-Fi space gray model I went out to this kind of hilltop area with my friend and we were just going to plan on just you know unbox it and just drop and that's what we did as you guys can see it was just brand new flawless opened up the wrapper didn't even fully set it up as you guys can see it was still in the English kind of in the setup process but it was a brand new iPad Aaron we did two different drop tests one regular side
Drop as you guys always know and then of course that front-facing drop from v feed maybe a little less this time about four and a half feet I'd say depending on the drop but let's go straight into the side drop first so let's go ahead and do this in three two one so as you guys can see from that very simple side drop test a very very interesting result some cracks pretty much everywhere on that iPad air especially of course in a laughs left hand corner but those cracks definitely going all along towards the very middle of the screen and kind of towards the
Left or the right bottom right-hand side of the iPad air as well so let's go straight into the front-facing drop test now and see what happens the front-facing drop test let's do this in three two one so as far as that front-facing drop test I gotta tell you guys the entire iPad air was shattered and broken now you guys can see crack lines and everything just all over the screen and trying to be as unbiased as I can I have to tell you guys this also that I have to say the iPad air was probably one of the most least durable devices I've ever
Dropped tested in my experience um and this is primarily because the the top of the iPad air actually it was a hollow it was pretty much like an entire hollow slab right above the screen itself it was like there's nothing in between the glass and the aluminum on the backside it was really shocking to me because and then as well as the side drop the crack with the side drop I've never had any tablet crack with just a single side drop test and once again this is slightly under five feet and this is just you know clearly just for my results that I you know had
I'm not trying to lean towards one product or the other because I do love Apple and I'm an you know i'm a average consumer but you guys can see that the iPad air really did not stand well against you know any type of drop in this case so case would definitely be highly recommended with this particular tablet app but I hope you guys enjoyed that drop test video as always guys stay tuned for more videos and as always guys peace out
